A new web-based service launched in March 2017 which could be of real interest to the amdram community.
Audiohoop is the brainchild of Michael Wharton, who originally envisaged it as a site where community groups could create and post audio tours for museums, and where those tours could be downloaded by visitors to add extra texture to exhibitions. The idea has grown and developed since that early concept and the site now enables anyone or any group of people – particularly actors, writers and sound technicians – to collaborate to create any form of audio content, predominantly in the form of audiobooks. They are then able to upload the audio content to site where it can be listened to and reviewed by anyone.
